Lol, wow, looks like Naughty Dog pulled a Nathan Drake and stole some art that wasn't theirs:
First, here is the new trailer:
Next, here is a closer look at the artwork in the trailer:
Finally, here is Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag art:
Even Ubisoft noticed this and commented on it:
Woooow Uncharted 4 using one of ACIV artwork in their trailer... I get the "thief" title now! https://t.co/rholpuvw9I lol at 1:36— Azaïzia Aymar (@AymarMtl) February 24, 2016
Yikes. Not a good look for Naughty Dog, lol
Naughty Dog took down the old trailer, and replaced it with a new one. You can see it below:
The image is now changed:
Finally, Naughty Dog's statement:
In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen.
We want to sincerely apologize to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.
I really hope that all the apologists understand that even Naughty Dog understand that they goofed up here. There really was no excuse for how it was originally.
That said, good on them for fixing the problem.
